  • Summary: The first time I got a defective one and the seller replaced with a new one immediately. So far, it works very well as my expectation. Very easy to use but it does not come with a manual to clarify some of their terms.

Good little scanner, gets the job done.

  • Excerpt: This book scanner is simple, light weight and easy to use. I'm not a real computer whiz so being able to basically plug it in and go is perfect for me. For scanning book text it works great and the resolution is fine. I've not tried color photos so I can't really judge it for that, but assume it will do those just as well. I bought this to fill in some gaps in my massive journal library and it works well.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Resolution
  • Cons: Easier Page Orientation

Great for school

Stephen M. Alonso "book Buff", Amazon

  • Summary: I'm a university student and some of my teachers will assign a chapter out of an expensive text book and this scanner solved my problems. I can scan the chapter I need and return the book to the library without fear of a late fee. I have found this really great when I have todo papers. I can scan my research and organize it or send it to other classmates easily. I scanned my cookbook collection (about 12) in about 2 days.

Fast and easy book scanning

Mike, Amazon
25 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to scan some textbooks for OCR / voice conversion. It was fairly easy to setup, though the install disk wasn't quite automatic. I had to do a "custom" install to do each component Individually. I really like the simple one button scan next page. On average, taking into account page turning and setup, I scan about 2 - 2.5 textbook pages per minute.

A good scanner for magazines and books.

S. Moshier "SLM", Amazon
15 April 2012
  • Summary: Regarding the comment about imaging close to the spine of the book, I found that we lose five sixteenths of an inch from the edge of the housing to the beginning of the scan area. There is a fiducial line near the right front corner showing where that area begins. I did run into a problem with one book that had been rebound with the pages trimmed. There are situations that will just demand an alternative easel and camera approach.
